I am about to color my drawing, but when I want to Merge the strokes, some of them disappears? What am I missing here, besides strokes?

    Could you post a screenshot of your layer structure, or the outline view? – Silly-V Jun 15 '18 at 16:06
  • What kind of "merge" are you doing? Are you trying to create a combined path using one of the pathfinder operations? If so, which pathfinder operation are you using? Please edit your question and add details as it's unclear. – Billy Kerr Jun 16 '18 at 10:38

What do you mean with "merge", are you applying a pathfinder type?

You don't need to do that,

  • If the drawing is a path, select it and Expand it. Keep the original path in another layer if you prefer.
  • Get the Shape Builder Tool

  • Click in each part you want to color
  • Select each one and fill
